This is a food mosaic lesson plan I created. I made this handout so that my students would have a reference sheet of the goals and expectations of the project, the directions, example images, and also a page on the artist Paul Cezanne that they could paste into their sketchbook/art journal.
The first page includes 3 major learning targets (Art Common Core Standards) that my students need to accomplish. This includes:
1: Identify primary, secondary, and complementary colors and be able to use it cohesively in an art project.
2: Use the technique of collage to create a 2D representational composition. *Collage is defined
3: Create artwork that shows inspiration from artist Paul Cezanne's fruit and vegetable still lifes.
The second page contains a blurb about Paul Cezanne and pictures of his artwork.
This project is very cost efficient. You can go into your local hardware store and ask to have some paint chip samples and cut them up into tiny shapes. I have my students glue the shapes onto cardboard. For some of my students, I pre-draw the outline of the fruit on the cardboard incase they have trouble. This is a great project to also focus on recycling and reusing materials since I am using paint chips or cut up construction paper and recycled cardboard.
